We’ve all suffered falls and tumbles as children, whether you spent your childhood climbing trees or cycling your bike everywhere. Children are accident prone – it’s true. They’re less aware of their surroundings and any dangers present, and so accidents can and do happen. But whilst most accidents are simply that, accidents, what about if a member of your family suffered a fall as a child which was somebody else’s fault?
Sending your child to nursery, playgroup or school is a scary time for most parents as you’re trusting the staff there to take good care of your child. They’ll need to be supervised at all times, and often a fall as a child happens when staff are negligent and distracted whilst they should be supervising children. Children could fall from a climbing frame or outdoor play equipment, whilst babies could fall if left alone on a changing mat or suffer a fall if their highchair is knocked over by other children.
If this is something which has affected your family, why not find out right now whether you’re entitled to claim personal injury compensation by getting in touch with our expert personal injury advisors?
You might not be 100% sure that you want to claim, but our team can offer confidential, no-obligation advice which allows you to make the decision without any pressure.
